Thomas Jefferson-A Wise Man

When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty. - Thomas Jefferson
.....really take some time and think about his comment...our future generations depend on it.

Here's another word from the wise Jefferson....

To take from one because it is thought that his own industry and that of his father’s has acquired too much, in order to spare to others, who, or whose fathers, have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association—the guarantee to every one of a free exercise of his industry and the fruits acquired by it.

I think myself that we have more machinery of government than is necessary, too many parasites living on the labor of the industrious.
- Thomas Jefferson

These comments from the 1800s are appropriate for today...WHAT are We The People allowing to happen?

and yet another Jefferson wise snippet....
In matters of style, swim with the current;

In matters of principle, stand like a rock.

So, ask yourself, are you going with the current trend of Big Government? or are you sticking to your principles and standing firm like a rock for our liberty? We need to use common sense when "hiring" our representatives. They are supposed to have OUR best interests at heart.....think about it!!

Now, back to being an aging badly, retired bit of humor...
A Biker and His Babe See what we have to look forward to....

This is what happens when your children take away your driver's license . I must really be slipping......looks like FUN to me!

Have a Delicious day!!!

SG!!!! I am so glad you're back!!! This is a wonderful post!!! Love the picture of the old folks on the scooter-train.

I so agree with Jefferson. He is truly one of our founders and he got it right and he's still right. I am so dismayed at how the majority of our voters don't see it. My sis says it's the 3rd generation dumb-down voters pushing us into banana-republic Marxism. Our economy is wrecked, our industries are self destructing and now our health care system will be completely socialized.

And if you're over 50 or like those old folks above, forget about being triaged into getting top priority medical care. Live with your bad heart or your creaky knees -- no operations for you! Then what will you do? Where will you go? Heck, where will the Canadians go for medical treatment????

We have to resist this top-down destruction of our nation and keep the knowledge of our founders alive and never give up. Never. Never. Never.
